2015 Port Stephens Family Fishing Competition Results

Perfect weather conditions over the weekend saw nearly 150 entries in the 2015 Inaugural Port Stephens Family Fishing Competition, sponsored by Soldiers Point Marina, Pantaenius Sail and Motor Yacht Insurance and Ibis Styles Salamander Shores. 

With the senior and junior winners grabbing Shimano rods, reels and hats for catching the heaviest of each of the 10 species, $10,000 in cash prizes was also given away with the lucky person hooking the major $5000 cash prize without even catching a fish.

Lucky door prizes of three nights’ accommodation at the Flagship Golf Villa at Horizons Golf Resort sponsored by the marina and a large esky donated by Tooheys were also taken away.

Junior fisherman Harry Bailey scooped the pool by catching the heaviest fish in 5 categories... an outstanding effort.

Big thanks also to BCF at Taylors Beach, and Duffy's Bait and Tackle for donating lots of prizes for the junior fishers.

Same time next year......

Testimonial

We have been at the marina for 2-3 years now and it is an experience to be moored there. The on wharf staff are absolutely fabulous and whenever there is any sort of incident, ie bad weather, you know that they will attend to your boat without you having to race down there. They will also help you get out of the marina or moor up in bad weather or a high tide running, which is a great help to amateur mariners. The added bonuses are of course the wonderful bathroom facilities, access to two great restaurants, the early morning coffees and the sunset cocktails. All in all, a great experience.
